Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Get some historical perspective at Mission San Jose and The Alamo. Get out of town with these interesting Austin side-trips: Natural Bridge Caverns (in San Antonio), Barn Pottery (in New Braunfels) and National Museum of the Pacific War (in Fredericksburg). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 12th (Fri) at Typhoon Texas. And it doesn't end there: ponder the world of politics at Texas State Capitol, snap pictures at Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, trek along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, and admire the striking features of The Driskill.

In April in Austin, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
